Is 40 Spots Enough? How Parcel 42's Parking Plan Stacks Up

New, 1 comment

It's been a few weeks since we've seen a dispute over the number of parking spaces allotted for a new development so we were about due for another controversy. This one comes courtesy of a residential and retail building that's coming to the empty lot known as Parcel 42 at 7th & R Street NW. The local ANC is displeased that that they're only planning on having 40 parking spots (underground) for this space. Admittedly, that's a lower number than most of the other new developments that include retail, but it's not the lowest we've seen pop up in that very walkable area. We stacked this up against some of the other new developments in the area.
